I have one document first.xls and another one second.xls
When I have a cell in second.xls with a reference to first.xls like
the path to the file is always doubled when I open second.xls again. So after reopening second.xls I get the path as:
This does not happen when I save the "second" document in .ods format.
Platform (if different from the browser):
openSuse 12.1, 32bit
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; i686 Linux; en_US, de; rv:1.9.2) Gecko/20100115 Firefox/3.6
not reproducible with LO 220.127.116.11. (Win7 Home, 64bit)
I can still reproduce this problem with 18.104.22.168 on Linux openSuse 12.2/64 bit
I can reproduce this in 22.214.171.124 on Bodhi Linux 2.2
Updating version to reflect this as version is the oldest version that we can confirm the problem on.
Major (loss of data, quite a pain when referencing across different documents)
High (default for major bugs, think that it fits here, could affect quite a few users)
The bug shows only if the spreadsheet is saved as XLS. There is no error when using ODF. Reproducable in LibreOffice 4.0.3 on Linux.
Steps to reproduce:
1) Create or open any spreadsheet
2) Create a new spreadsheet and link some cells to the first one
3) Save the new spreadsheet as XLS
4) Re-open this XLS spreadsheet.
The file path up to the filename in the link is repeated twice.
